    Default Group to KIA KM Bootsman.

    Guys,

    Got this today and probably paid too much but it tickled me that it was still complete.

    Wehpass with entries.

    Two cap tallys.

    Letter of condolance from OC.

    Letter of condolance from former employers.

    Listed in small publication from former employer (I had a comrade).

    Letter from padre with a photo of the burial service.

    Call up papers and some more photos of him with pals.

    A strange looking Russian document with punch marks?

    That info is readily available on the Volksbund site and is free to access. It is the WASt & German Red Cross who only release information held in a soldiers files (units served in, where KIA/MIA etc) to the NOK, and sometimes (although apparantly not very often) even they send it to those who ask.

    On your first go you will have to register but that is just a formality - I used my real name and a made up German address!
